Red Sparrow (out Mar 1) is a Russian spy thriller made from a similar mould to that use in The Bourne Identity series. Rather than develop trained assassins, the Russian military has selected candidates for their beauty and are using them to seduce key targets. It’s an intriguing screenplay with a few subplots lurking in the background but it never quite fulfils its promise. Grade: B-.
